Members of the deaf community resonate with the new release crime-thriller Silent Fear  if the early reviews are any guide. Little wonder given the storyline, which is set in a university for the deaf in London, was inspired by the real-life murders of deaf students at Gallaudet University, in Washington, D.C., and was written under the guidance of a deaf consultant.

Novel resonates with deaf community.

 

In her 5-Star review on Goodreads, deaf educator Megan Rang says as a teacher of the deaf, she looks for literature that accurately depicts deaf characters in deaf culture. Her review follows:

“This book was also a thriller and that is a genre I am drawn in by. With a serial killer AND a flu quarantine it makes for a lot happening.

“The characters in this story weren’t the type I would fall in love with and be rooting for throughout the book. Most seemed to have issues and that added to the suspense. I had read a review that said the reader was completely thrown off guard by the outcome of this book. With that in mind I started looking more deeply at the characters and had it all figured out minus the very final twist that you can’t see coming. It made for good reading.

“I have recommended and will continue to recommend this book to others. It was worth reading.”

Amazon reviewer J.D. Denness says, “It’s not often you come across a book featuring the deaf community and even rarer for the story to be based in a school for the deaf. For the last 16 years I’ve worked at a school for the deaf so I was very interested to see how the authors did portraying this unique community. They have done a very good job, their research has been thorough and the advice they got was spot on… All in all this a very good book, one of my top reads for 2017, it is well worth the time to read.”

The early reviews are in for author Yvonne Crowe’s mystery-thriller novel Requiem for Ari: A Race to the death against their enemies, Book 7 in the Nicolina Fabiani Series, and the consensus is this may be the best book in the series.

 

Requiem for Ari: A Race to the death against their enemies (Book 7 Nicolina Fabiani Series) by [Crowe, Yvonne]

Early reviews excellent.

 

Book critic John Carlin says, “I love this series! The writing is so good you feel like you are right there with David, Lina, and Ari as they go through what can only be described as hell more horrific than anything most people could ever conjure up in there minds. The torture scenes are absolutely chilling.

“As is usual with Crowe’s style, she manages to make a teaching event of it as well by putting her considerable research about the Middle East on display. I love this, especially when coupled with the powerful writing she has.

“If you want entertaining reads, this whole series will do it for you, and this book might possibly be the best of the series. It allowed Crowe to take the characters to higher levels, and that is no trivial undertaking. Get it! Read it! You will love it!”

 

Requiem for Ari — the storyline:

The Institute always brings home its own.

Being an Israeli Katsa is a dangerous occupation. The tight knit teams form a bond as strong as that of a marriage. When one of David Baron’s unit is captured by Hamas operating inside Syria, he is faced with an impossible choice.

Risk his own life to bring Ari home; or play it safe now his wife Lina is pregnant with their first child?

Duty on the one hand, love on the other.

From Tunisia to the Golan Heights and Damascus. Lebanon to Yazidi Iraq. Their lives crisscross as David wages war, and Lina the journalist, covers it.

What choice will he make?

Yvonne Crowe is a successful New Zealand writer who enjoys writing provocative mystery/thriller novels. She has also conquered breast cancer with a natural therapy.
